These sessions will give elected members the opportunity to learn about parliamentary scrutiny and discuss what local and national scrutiny can learn from each other.
You will get a chance to hear from a chair of a select committee and put your questions directly to them.
The day will also include a “Questioning and chairing skills session”, where we will explore the skills needed to evaluate evidence, understand some issues that you might face, and practice the select committee style questioning and chairing skills that will have been discussed with parliamentary colleagues earlier in the day.
Who should attend:

The seminars will run from 11.00am to 16:00. Please click here to see a draft programme of how the day will run.
